Hi Paula, I wear a trainer type shoe and I find it the most comfortable, not very glamorous but I wear them most of time. If I do wear a shoe it has to be cushioned inside and no pointed shoes anymore sometimes Clark's do shoes that are reasonably comfortable. I bought a pair of black leather Gabor comfort shoes in the John lewis Sale a couple of months ago and they are comfy. For the summer months I find a sandal is best, again it has to be cushioned inside and a strap across the instep for support, I got a pair last year from Clark's. x

I find it depends on what I wear the shoes for, eg soft soled trainers I only use for driving and wearing about the house, plus I've had orthotic insoles made up, I wear them everywhere, except obviously in bed, out and about walking I'd never entertain trainers again, my feet spread in them, that encouraged the arthritis I now have in both ankles, and some toes, and where the toes are concerned that are arthritic I get pain also under the foot according. Of course there's a multitude of reasons why the feet can hurt, if you're flat footed for example, or problems running right down from the lower back too your feet, incorrect alignment in your body, and with the feet having 25% of all the bodies bones there's plenty there to go wrong, so initially a good quality lace up shoe providing flexibility, but with a firm, but comfortable support across the bridge of the foot,,and consulting a knowledgeable podiatrist could help as well, I've been through maybe a dozen of them with my feet, nearly every one recommended orthotics that didn't work out at all, until, at a later date a physio made me realise just how tight my tendons were, I'd had masses of problems with both plants facials, now I stretch regularly as best I can, wear bespoke orthotic, good quality shoes, and I'm sorry, but I used to swear by Clarks shoes, but now they've gone the way of all the rest, cheap imports from Asia, Vietnam in their case, never wear any pointed shoes, might be a fashion, otherwise a load of rubbish, the women I've known who've had bunions done, several, both feet, you have to give your toes plenty of freedom to move about, so many shoes now non resole able, rubber soles, and when so many people wear down the outside of the shoe with the way they walk, the shoe doesn't last 5 minutes, I find shop after shop full of rubbish, I even sit around in shopping malls now and again looking at what people are wearing, it's alarming, whatever your problems are Paula, you've got to get your wallet out initially for the shoes, and get some serious advice about your feet, or for that matter a referral from your doctor to a consultant dealing with feet who might have reasons for why your feet have swelling there that may be caused by problems elsewhere in the body

Hotters. Not cheap but made in the UK and you can often get incredible bargains in their sales, like a £60 pair of trainers for £22.

Iāve tried jogging and love the cardiovascular workout and endorphin rush, but my knees nixed that crazy endeavor, as did my Arthritis. So I returned to what I do best: I walk with orthofeet Arthritis comfortable shoes. These shoes are comfortable! My feet may need a specialist, but I am happy with this purchase. I wear these to walk the dogs, exercise, or anytime nights and weekends. They look great and feel even better.
